Sunday Night Football Ratings

Ratings: Sunday Night Football Does Giant Numbers, Miss America Dips

NBC Sunday Night Football’s coverage of the Giants’ loss to the Cowboys drew 24.5 million total viewers and a 9.2 demo rating, up 15 percent from last year’s Colts-Broncos match-up and marking the top-rated SNF Sunday opener since 2012.

The overnight ratings also best the Giants/Cowboys’ previous two SNF season kickoffs, in 2013 and 2007.

Up against the ol’ pigskin, ABC’s Miss America telecast (7 mil/1.5) was steady in audience year-over-year but down two tenths in the demo.

CBS’ Big Brother is currently looking at 6.8 mil/2.1, though those numbers are subject to deflation due to NFL overrun. Check back later in the event I get industrious and post an update.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Was hoping BB’s ratings would go down for having Frankie be a “luxury”

    Numbers are subject to “deflation”. I see what you did there.
